In the First Person

IN THE FIRST PERSON is an index to English-language personal narratives, including letters, diaries, memoirs, autobiographies, and oral histories. Drawing on archives, repositories, publishers, and individuals, it indexes first-person narratives from hundreds of published volumes, others publicly available on the Web, and still others held by repositories and archives around the world. It is an extensive archive of social memory and a good starting point for those who want to find, explore, and analyze human experiences. The earliest documents indexed are from the 16th century; the latest are from 2004. One feature of particular note is the indexing by "Historical Event" for both collections and individual documents.
Available to everyone.
